TV personality Caitlín Nic Aoidh got a pleasant surprise yesterday when she discovered that she was featured on the Junior Cert Irish paper.
The Cloughaneely native is well-known as the TG4 weather presenter and host of other shows, but she couldn’t forecast being a star of the Higher Level Gaeilge exam!
Doiligh a chreidiúint nuair a bhí mé féin ag déanamh an teastas sóisearach fada an lá ó shin, go mbéinn fhéin ar an pháipéar lá breá eicint! #JuniorCert @TG4TV @ptccf #LeavingCert2019 pic.twitter.com/bERyQ7fuOe

Caitlín was featured in a magazine-style profile on her life and career. Students were asked to read the story and answer questions. The article explored Caitlín’s role promoting the Irish language during Seachtain na Gaeilge 2018 and her new appointment as the Irish language ambassador for Cloich Chionnaola.
Sharing her surprise on Instagram, Caitlín wrote: “Doiligh a chreidiúint nuair a bhí mé féin ag déanamh an teastas sóisearach fada an lá ó shin go mbéinn fhéin ar an pháipéar lá breá eicint!”
“Hard to believe when I was sitting the Junior Cert many moons ago that I’d be on the paper myself one day. Hope everyone sitting it got 100% in that section.”
